Event and business visitors have played a big role this year. Notre Dame versus Navy gave  a huge boost to visitor numbers. We’re seeing strong business and leisure events providing growth in Limerick,” he said.But the hotelier added that the city is not making a recovery at the same pace as Galway, Cork or Dublin.“The biggest sector lagging is the UK market, which is still about 35 per cent down. The talk now is on the need for a new product, a need to put packages together and get into the UK and market those. We need to work on getting that market”.And elsewhere in the region, hospitality providers are seeing a return of European holiday makers. A spokesperson for the Killaloe/Ballina Business Association said that the “European market has come back this year, and we are seeing a lot of German people visiting. There’s been some recovery too in the US market. We have been working with a travel agent in Limerick to bring the German market in and it has paid off”.

Kirubakaran and Justice B. Pugalendhi further directed the authorities to give fair opportunity to all Television Channels to cover the Festivals, so that, the sentiments of the devotees can also be addressed by the authorities.BackgroundA Writ Petition was filed by the petitioner for directions to the respondents to let them conduct Soorasamharam at Beach on 20.11.2020 and Thirukalyanam at Thirukalyana Mandapam on 21.11.2020 during Skanda Sasti festival 2020 at Arulmighu Subramaniya Swamy Thirukovil, Tiruchendur, Thoothukudi District within a stipulated time as fixed by this Court.It was contended by the Petitioner that the temple authorities are going to conduct Soorasamharam and Thirukalyanam within the precincts of the temple contrary to the practice of conducting the Soorasamharam at Beach and Thirukalyanam at Thirukalyana Mandapam during the Skanda Sasti Festival, 2020 at Arulmighu Subramaniya Swamy Thirukovil, Thiruchendur.It was further submitted that the Ancient Scripture Skandapurana was brought from Nepal and it was translated in Tamil by Katchiappa Sivachariar.According to the Sixth Kandam viz., Porpuri Kandam, a battle with Surapadma has to be conducted only in Beach and it is a tradition being followed for decades together.Contrary to that, it was submitted, the temple authorities are going to conduct the same within the precincts of the temple.It was further submitted that after giving a representation to the respondents, dated 16.11.2020, the petitioner came forward to file the instant Writ Petition.To this, the Court said,”The decision taken by the authorities to conduct the Soorasamharam within the precincts of the temple cannot also be found fault, in view of the pandemic situation.”The Court also remarked,”The authorities are also supposed to follow the Standard Operative Procedures and the devotees cannot also be allowed to congregate in one place.

Egg-shell morphology of the Antarctic fish, Notothenia rossii Richardson, and the distribution and abundance of pelagic eggs at South Georgia

first_imgDuring winter research cruises to South Georgia (1983 and 1993) fish eggs were abundant in the neuston. Examination of the external sculpturing and the micropyle morphology of the eggs collected during 1993 using scanning electron microscopy indicated that these were fertilized ova of Notothenia rossii marmorata. A comparison between the eggs of N. rossii from Iles Kerguelen and South Georgia showed these to have a similar surface morphology but a difference in the structure of the micropyle. In 1993, the abundance of fish eggs in the neuston varied from 0-116 eggs m−3 with an average of 4.5 eggs m−3. During 1983, eggs were most abundant in the neuston but at lower average levels (0.04 eggs m−3, range 0–1.17 eggs m−3) and these were distributed from the surface to >380 m.last_img read more
